Readers of Tarzan of the
Apes" there were millions of
them have been awaiting with
,"Thn Ppnrr, nf Teir-
ten." They need no introduc
tion to the ape-man, who was
an English lord by ancestry and
an inhabitant of the treetops by
fate until the same fate brought
him out and made him a civilized
man after twenty years of life
among the great apes of Africa.
His adventures, as wonderful and
interesting as any set forth in
words, have been the center of
interest in a story that is unique
in its originality.
i'Jow we have "The Return of
Tarzan," as thrilling as its fore
runner. In it are told the fur
ther adventures cf the splendid
ape-man, who at last wins his
way to the side of his true love
after facing countless perils by
land and sea.
Whoever read "Tcrzan of the
Apes" needs no invitation to
peruse this story. Others are
warned that after they read this
sequel to "Tarzan of the Apes"
they won't be satisfied until they
have read that story also.
The Passing of the Ape-Man.
THAT niulit Tarzau built a snus
little bower hiidi among the
swaying branches of a giaLt
tree, aud there the tired girl
i-'.ei't. while in a croteli beneath her
the ape-man curled, ready, even in
sleep, to protect her.
It took them many days to make the
loijjr journey to the coast- Where the
way was easy thev walked hand in
hand beneath the arching bows of the
mighty forest, as miLt in a far gone
last have walked their primeval for
bears. Where the unJt rbrusli was
tai.lcd he took her in his great arms
and bore her lightly through the trees,
and the days were all too short, for
they v ere very happy. Had it not
been for thir anxiety to reach and
succor Clayton they would have drawn
out the sweet pleasure of that wonder
ful journey inde'iniuly.
On the lat day before they reached
he coast Tarzan caught the scent of
men ahead of them the scent of black
let u. He told the girl and cautioned
her to maintain silence. "There are
few friends in the jungle,' he remark
In half an hour they came stealthily
upon a small party of black warriors
Cling toward the west. As Tarzan saw
theui he gave a cry of delight. It
was a band of his own Waziri. Husuli
was there and others who had accom
panied him to Upar. At sight f him
they danced and cried out in exuberant
joy. For weeks they had been search
ing for hitn they f'd him.
The blacks exhibited considerable
wonderment at the presence f the
white girl with him. and when they
found that she was to be his woman
they vied with one another to do her
honor. With the happy Waziri laugh
ing and dancing about them, they
dime to the rude shelter by the shore.
There was no sign of life and no re
sponse to their calls. Tarzan clam
bered quickly to the interior of the lit
tle tree hut, only to emerge a moment
later with an empty tin. Thowing it
down to Husuli, he told him to fetch
water and then he beckoned Jane Por
ter to come up.
Together they leaned over the ema
ciated thing that once had been an
Ilnglish iiobleinan. Tears came to the
girl's eyes as she saw the pour, sunken
cheeks and hollow eyes and the lines
of suffering upon the once young and
"lie still lives." said Tarzan. "We
will do all that can be done for him.
but I fear that we are too late."
When Pusuli had brought the water
Tnrzan forced a few drops between the
cracked and swollen lips. He wetted
the hot forehead and bathed the piti
Presently Clayton opened his eyes.
A faint, shadowy nmile lighted his
countenance as he saw the girl leaning
over him. At sight of Tarzan the ex
pression changed to one of wonder
uier.t. "it's all right, old fellow." said the
rpe-mau. "We've found you in time.
Ilre.rythjrg will 'be all right now. and
we'll have you on your feet again be-
fore you know it."
The Englishman shook Lis head 1
weakly. "It's too late," he whispered, j

"Where is M. Thnrau?" asked line

he almost shouted; "I will live! I will
Jive long enough to find and kill that
beast!" P. ut the brief effort left him
weaker than before, and he sank back
again upon the rotting grasses that.
wi:h his old ulster, had been the bed
of Jane Porter.
"Don't worry about Thuran." said
Tarzan of the Apes, laying a reassur
ing hand on Clayton's forehead. "lie
belongs to me, and I shall get him in
the end. never fear."
Tor a long time Clayton lay very
still. Several times Tarzan had to put
his c ar iuite close to the sunken chest
to cutch the faint beating of the worn
out heart. Toward evening lie aroused
again for a brief moment.
"J:; ne." he whispered. The girl bent
her head closer to catch the faint mes
5 ice. "I have wronged yon and him."
he nodded weakly toward the ape-man.
"I loved you so. It is a poor excuse to
ofi'er for injuring you. but I could not
tear to think of giving you up. I d-
not ask your forgiveness. I only wish
to do now the thing 1 should have done
oer a year ago." He fumbled in the
pocket of the ulster beneath him tor
something that he had discovered there
while he lay between the paroxysms
of fever. Presently he found it a
crumbled bit of yellow paper. lie
handed it to the girl, and as she took
It his arm fell limply across his chest,
his head dropped back, and v-.tli a lit
tle gasp he stiffened and was still.
Then Tarzan of the Apes drew a fold
of the ulster across the upturned face.
As they rose and stood on either side
if the no v.- peaceful form tears came
to the ape-man's eyes, for through the
anguish that his own heart had suf
fered he had learned compassion for
the suffering of others.
Through her tears the jrirl read tb
message upon the bit of faded yellow
paper, and as she read her eyes went
very wide. Twice she read those star
tling words before she could fully com
prehend their meaning.
J. C. Tarran. Tlaltimort-, MJ.:

She handed the paper to Tarzan.
"And he has known it all this time."
she sai l, "and did not tell you?" -
"I "-.new ft first. Jane." replied Tar
zau. "I did not know that he knew
It at all. I must have dropped thL?
message that night in the waiting
room. It was there that I received it."
"And afterward you told us that
yc-ur mother was a she-ape and that
jou had never known your father?"
she asked incredulously.
"The title and the estates meant
nothing to me without you, dear." he
replied. "And if I had taken them
away from him I should have been
lobbing the woman I love don't you
understand. Jane?" It was as though
he attempted to excuse a fault.
She extend'Hl her arms toward him
across- th body of the dead man and
took his hands in hers.
"And I would have thrown away a
love like that!" she said.
The next morning they set out upon
tlie short journey to Tarzan's cabin.
Four Waziri bore the body of the dead
Kiig'.ishman. It had been the ape
man's suggestion that Clayton be bur
fed beside the former Lord CJreystoke
near the edge of the jungle against the
cabin that the older man had built.
Jane Porter was glad that it vfas to
lie so. and in her heart of hearts she
wondered at the marvelous fineness of
character of this wondrous man, who,
though raised by brutes and among
brutes, had the true chivalry and ten
derness which one ouly associates with
the refinements of the highest civiliza
tion. They had proceeded sonie three miles
of the live that had separated them
from Tarzan's own beach when the
Waziri who were ahead stopped sud
denly, pointing in amazement at a
strange figure approaching them along
the beach. It was a man with a shiny
f.ilk hat. who walked slowly with bent
head and hands clasped behind him
underneath the tails of his long black
At sight of him Jane Porter uttered
a little cry of surprise and joy and ran
j quickly ahead to meet him. At the
souuu or ner voice the old man looked
up, and when lie saw who it was con
fronting him he, too. cried out in relief
and happiness. As Professor Archi
medes y. Porter folded his daughter in
his arms tears streamed down his
seamed old face, and it was several
minutes before he could control hiru-
self sufficiently to speak.
When a moment later he recognized
Tarzan it was with difficulty that they
could conTince Lim that his sorrow
had not unbalanced his mind, for with
the other memlers of the party he had
l,,en so thoroughly convinced that the
ape-man was dead it was a problem
fo"rec6ucTle the conviction with the
very lifelike appearance of Jane's "for
fait pod." The old man was deeply
touched at the news of Clayton's
"I cannot understand it," he said.
"M. Thuran assured us that Clayton
passed away many days ago."
"Thuran Is with you?" asked Tar
zan. "Yes. lie but recently found us and
led us to your cabin. We were camped
but a short distance north of it. Rless
me. but he will be delighted to see you
"And surprised." commented Tar
zan. A short time later the strange party
came to the clearing in which stood
the ape-man's cabin. It was filled with
people coming and going, and almost
the first whom Tarzan saw was D'Ar
not "Paulf he cried. "In the name of
sanity, what are you doing here? Or
are we all insane?"
It was quickly explained, however,
as were many other seemingly strange
things. D'Arnot's ship had been cruis
ing along the coast on patrol duty
when, at the lieutenant's suggestion,
they had anchored off the bttle land
locked harbor to have another look at
the cabin and the jungle in which
many of the officers and men had ta
ken part iu exciting adventures two
years before. On landing they had
found Lord Tennington's party, and
arrangements were being made to take
them all ou board the following morn
ing and carry them back to civiliza
tion. Hazel Strong and her mother. Es
meralda, and Samuel T. Philander
were almost overcome by happiness at
Jane Porter's safe return. Her escape
seemed to them little short of miracu
lous, and it was the consensus of opin
ion that it could have been achieved
by no other man than Tarzan of the
Apes. They loaded th 'ir.comfortable
ape-man with eulogies and attentions
until he wished himself back iu the
amphitheater of the apes.
All were interested in the savage
Waziri. and many were the gifts the
black men received from these friends
of their king, but when they learned
that he might sail away from them
upon the great canoe that lay at an
chor a mile o3f shore they became very
As yet the newcomers had seen
nothing of Lord Teunington aud M.
Thuran. They had gone out for fresh
meat early in the day and had not yet
"How surprised this man. whose
name you say is Kokoff, will be to see
you." said Jane Porter to Tarzan.
"His surprise will be short lived
replied the ape-man grimly, and there
was that in his tone that made her
look up into his face in alarm. What
she read there evidently confirmed her
fears, for she put her hand upon his
arm and pleaded with him to leave the
Russian to the laws of France.
"In the heart of the jungle, dear."
she said, "with no other form of right
or justice to appeal to other than your
own mighty muscles, you would be
warranted in executing upon this man
the sentence he deserves, but with the
strong arm of a civilized government
at your disposal it would be murder
to kill him r:ow. Even your friends
would have to submit to your arrest,
or if you resisted it you would plunge
us all into misery and unhappiness
again. I cannot bear to lose you again,

the presence of strangers in the camp.

and went white.

pulled the trigger. But the English
man was close to him so close that
his hand reached the leveled barrel a
fraction of a second before the hammer
fell upon the cartridge, and the bullet
that was intended for Tarzan's heart
whirred harmlessly above his head.
P.efore the Russian could fire again
the ape-man was upon him and had
wrested the firearm from his grasp.

they were not all quite mad.
At sunset they buried William Cecil

Tarzan's request that three volleys

Professor Porter, who in his younger
days had been ordained a minister,
conducted the simple services for the
dead. About the grave, with bowed
heads, stood as strange a company or
mourners as the sun ever looked down
upon. There were French officers and
sailors, two English lords. Americans
and a score of savage African braves.
Following the funeral Tarzan asked
Captain Dufranne to delay the sailing
of the cruiser a couple of days while
Le went inland a few miles to fetch
his "belongings." and the officer gladly
granted the favor.
Late the next afternoon Tarzan and
his Waziri returned with the first load
of "belongings." and when the party
saw the ancient ingots of virgin gold
they swarmed upon the ape-man with
a thousand questions, but he was smil
ingly obdurate to their appeals he de
clined to give them the slightest clew
as to the source of his immense treas

behind." he explained, "for every one

with the balance of his ingots and
